Leicester City vs Newcastle Match Preview and Team News
Leicester goes to this game unbeaten in their last three league matches, having scored two or more goals in five of their previous seven games. Kelechi Iheanacho has been their best performer, with nine goals in the last eight league matches. In the last game, he didn’t score but provided the assist as Jonny Evans scored the equalizer in the 1-1 draw with Southampton. Some work needs to be done in the Foxes defense, though. They have scored eight goals in the last five league games but have conceded seven; they have one clean sheet in those five matches. The positive thing going to this game is that some stability is coming at home, with three wins in the last four league matches. Youri Tielemans plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Kelechi Iheanacho enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy.
Newcastle United needs four points to secure their Premier League status. They’ve had a tough season and, at some point, featured among the favorites for relegation. They’ve, however, managed to open up a gap with the bottom three, thanks to two wins and a draw in their last four matches. The visitors are coming from a 2-0 loss to Arsenal in the previous game, and they’ll be the underdogs here, too, having lost each of their last three meetings with Leicester. Fabian Schar was sent off in their last match and will miss this game, but the Magpies will be glad to have Joe Willock back, having been ineligible for the Arsenal clash. In 17 away league matches this season, they’ve won just four. Sean Longstaff plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Joelinton is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals.
